Refugee Family Child Care Microenterprise Development Program

NOFO has been modified to correct application due date.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invites eligible entities to submit competitive grant applications for funding under the Refugee Family Child Care Microenterprise Development


Project (RFCCMED).

Through the RFCCMED program, ORR will provide funding for applicants which, through internal capacity and partnerships, will provide eligible participants with training and technical assistance in professional child care, microenterprise development, and financial literacy; participants in navigating the child care licensing process; and provide direct financial assistance as needed to enable participants to prepare their homes for child care business operation.

The three main objectives of RCCMED are to 1) help Afghan entrants to achieve economic self- sufficiency by establishing licensed family child care (FCC) businesses; 2) help eligible Afghan families gain access to licensed FCC businesses which will meet the early care and developmental needs of refugee children; and 3) assist Afghan entrants in learning how to navigate mainstream child care services.

In accordance with the Afghan Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022, RCP programs funded under this NOFO will serve nationals of Afghanistan for whom refugee and entrant assistance is authorized who entered the United States on or after July 31, 202 1. Projects funded under this NOFO will be fully funded for a period of 36 months.
